New article: "Structural characterisation of TCT used as a curtain wall"

A new use of the promising Textile Ceramic Technology (TCT) is presented in the paper Structural characterisation of TCT used as a curtain wall by E. Bernat-Maso, L. Gil, P. Roca, V. Sarrablo and C. Escrig, which has been published in Construction and Building Materials. This work presents a set of innovative testing procedures aimed to characterise the mechanical performance of textile ceramic facade panels. Different loading conditions corresponding to wind and gravity forces have been considered and the experimental results are useful to define the application range of this technology when used as a curtain wall.
